Berger Luxatex Salt Inhibitive Primer

A salt-blocking primer for concrete, cement and wood that provides an effective barrier coating against the elements.

A special sealer based on modified acrylic resin containing inert pigments. Its alkali resistant, thermoplastic, anti-carbonation and excellent penetrating properties make it an ideal sealer or primer for properties on or by the sea. Berger Luxatex Salt Inhibitive Primer is a unique primer, in its ability to be top-coated by both oil based and water based topcoats, such as Berger 404 Gloss Oil Paint, Berger Rustpro Anti-Rust Enamel and Berger WeatherProof Ultra Exterior Emulsion.
